Build upgrade options.

  • Last week I upgraded from the latest stable i386 build to the latest nightly i386 snapshot build.

    My question is, is it possible to go back to the stable build without having to reinstall from scratch? re:upgrade in place.

    It depends.

    On a full install, no, it's not possible. Too many files would get left in place that would break things. You have to reinstall.
    On NanoBSD, yes.

    However either way you'd need to restore a config from before the upgrade, since the config format changed from 2.0.x to 2.1.
